In OS 1.25, three brand new effects have been implemented. A stereo image shaping Spatializer, a gritty and twangy Spring Reverb and a lush, smooth and wide Dark Reverb.

Frame is a simple Reaktor sampler Peter Danes has created to implement a type of freeform looping and creative sampling he felt was missing from most other software samplers on the market. Frame allows you to define a window of sound and sweep it across the sample as it plays without glitching or popping.
This tutorial looks at using the Sine Bank Module in Reaktor to build basic waves such as Saw, Sqr, and Tri. We also talk about using the very powerful “Iteration” module to calculate all the partials as fast as possible, and briefly discuss the idea of Anti-Aliased Oscillators.
In this video Peter Dines walk you through creating a simple multipurpose sampler in Reaktor.
“I introduce you to basic Reaktor concepts like control and audio signal flow, polyphony, sample import and mapping, signal modulation with an envelope and adding factory effects. This is an introductory level video but it covers a lot of important territory you need to know to build more advanced structures.
Look forward to more videos from me – the next one will be on creating a sequenced beat production center from scratch.”

The WaveChaser is a sample player that uses a granular synthesis engine to play any sample with independent control over pitch and time. Generating lush sequenced effects that scan and morph around the eight dimension windows, producing never ending midi playable wave sequencing textures.
For more information visit http://www.everythingturns.com/
The WaveChaser places the same sample in each of the eight windows, and then reads the waveform as the sequencer jumps from window to window in a repeating loop, each time a window becomes active it plays the waveform as it scans to the position set by the crosses in each window, the crosses set the sample position and playback length.
You can play a static window via MiDi to achieve a granular synthesis effect or you can get the WaveChaser to play 2 or more windows in a sequence and play them via MiDi or just let it do it’s thing and record the loop via Reaktor’s in built recorder, drag the loop to the desktop and then use it in your sequencer.

Electrify is a very powerful and flexible sample based groove machine. It does look a bit complex at first but that is only because it contains so many features. It’s just a matter of setting up sequences for each sample, then triggering each clip to create your arrangement. There are 8 tracks to work with and 8 layers to create variation or multiple song parts. There is a non-destructive sample editor to shape each sample and 2 effect busses each with 9 effects each to choose from. The mastering section contains an equaliser and compressor to further tighten the mix. Samples can be pasted in from the general pasteboard but it also comes with a great collection so you can get straight in and start creating. It’s worth spending the time to understand the workflow of Electrify because it is designed for live performances so it is easy to use. The live recording feature is perfect for creating both evolving loops, complete songs and interesting rhythm tracks. I love this app because it creates such good results, so rating this app is very easy….A Killer App!
